This Cruel Design
This Cruel Design | Emily Suvada
Cat thought the Hydra epidemic was over, but when new cases pop up, Cat must team up with an enemy to fix the vaccine before the virus spirals out of control in this thrilling sequel to This Mortal Coil, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman says "redefine's 'unputdownable.'" The nightmare of the outbreak is finally over, but Cat's fight has only just begun. Exhausted, wounded, and reeling from revelations that have shaken her to her core, Cat is at a breaking point. Camped in the woods with Cole and Leoben, she's working day and night, desperate to find a way to stop Lachlan's plan to reprogram humanity. But she's failing--Cat can't even control her newly regrown panel, and try as she might to ignore them, she keeps seeing glitching visions from her past everywhere she turns. When news arrives that the Hydra virus might not be as dead as they'd thought, the group is pushed into an uneasy alliance with Cartaxus to hunt down Lachlan and fix the vaccine. Their search takes them to Entropia, a city of genehackers hidden deep in the desert that could also hold the answers about Cat's past that she's been searching for. But when confronted with lies and betrayals, Cat is forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts. And while Lachlan is always two steps ahead, the biggest threat to Cat may be the secrets buried in her own mind.

Emily Suvada is the real deal. This second book in the Mortal Coil series is superb, continuing to nuance the relationships between characters and add layers of plot without bogging down the story. If you like dystopian fiction, I highly recommend this. If you shy away from YA, do NOT shy away from this book! It is so well done (but start with book one). I cannot wait for the next book!

BarbaraBB You‘re sure? Because I do like dystopia but not YA! 5mo
Hooked_on_books @BarbaraBB I find some YA quite superficial. This is not. It is rich and nuanced and great storytelling. Plus Suvada really knows her science. I think it‘s only YA because the main character is a teen. Give the first book a try to see if it works for you. 5mo

After a hectic period in my life I finally got back to reading and this was a hell of a read.

I LOVED the first one and this one was better. The ending evoked so much emotion I wanted to throw the book while simultaneously willing the next one into existence immediately.

5/5

Sequels never live up to their predecessor. This Cruel Design was good but a tad confusing. I still love the characters and world building. The concept is original, and Suvada was able to build the world so tightly. The twist at the end was a shocker. I wonder what will happen in book three. I highly recommend this series. It's easy to get lost in.

I can‘t believe I hadn‘t posted my review of this book yet. Been way off the wagon in my reading posts this year. Let it suffice that this is an amazing novel and series. Emily Suvada really knows how to set a fierce pace with lots of great twists. Can‘t wait for the third book! #EmilySuvada #YA #scifi

IheartYA I'm going to reread the first book (it's that good) soon then move to the second. 😊 11mo
LibrarianRyan That was on this months TBR but if I don‘t get to it, I will next month. I‘m excited. 11mo

This is a strong sequel to This Mortal Coil. Cat and her friends are trying to stop the mutated virus, and Cat learns more about herself and more about her past. There‘s so much DNA science in this book- it is well-researched and quite detailed for YA dystopian fiction! Lots of action and adventure!

I‘m just a little more than 60 pages away from finishing This Cruel Design. The thought another year-long wait for the next installment is already looming large for me. This series has been so much fun to read so far. #SoCruel #ThisCruelDesign #ThisMortalCoil #EmilySuvada #YA #scifi #youngadult

There‘s such a strength to Emily Suvada‘s writing. She gets so much perfect that she‘s very much Jun Bei, but writing fiction instead of genetic code. The way she takes a moment in this chapter to reorient the reader with what‘s happening for each of these characters and what‘s at stake is impressive. #SoCruel #EmilySuvada #ThisCruelDesign #YA #scifi #youngadult

What the what did I just read?!? Wow. Not much of a sophomore slump here. The twists and turns and “what just happened” moments continue just as they did in This Mortal Coil. Catarina is on the run & there are new friends, new enemies, & secrets both told & not told that will change everything. I don‘t want to spoil it so I‘ll just say that if you enjoyed This Mortal Coil you will definitely enjoy this one too. A great, nonstop thrill ride!

I don‘t think Wicket cares for me reading this book. To be fair, his opinion might be a bit biased since the main character is named Cat. #DogsOfLitsy #ThisCruelDesign #EmilySuvada #YA #youngadult #scifi

I‘d be lying if I didn‘t admit that the amazing cover to This Mortal Coil is what first got me interested in that book (and damn, did I ever end up loving that book!). This has left me extremely curious how the cover designer was ever going to do anything near as good for the sequel and recapture the style of the first book. Book cover designer Regina Flath has done it again, though. First time I‘ve crushed on a cover artist. 🙀🙀🙀 #coverreveal
